exactly 30 seconds at the start of the new age...
the click list showed 0
but 10 users had credits over 600...
Yes, within 30 seconds of the start, HOW CAN SOMEONE get 600 credits ?
TELL US ALL.

Clicking a captcha in the game gives you a credit.
Looks like some took advantage of that, or did a WHOLE lot of PM'ing, lol.

Is it against the rules to use CF and the in-game recruiter at the same time?

I can see the PMing and stuff... but that should have all been ZEROED out at the beginning of the age...
Umm, last I knew, ONE recuiter at a time
but I'm just aplayer...

You're probably right, I won't take a chance.

It changes if the ability to click dies.

Ask a mod what the current status is.

Currently it is not against the rules to click with multiple clients (* x Firefox or * x CF).

If this changes there will be a warning ingame.

Clarifying what Tapchou said: Due to the server holding up rather well, there is no restriction on multiple click methods simultaneously. We only do this to ensure a level playing field; one user using 40% of the available resources is not exactly fair.

Fair enuff.
Thanks Andy for the clairification.
And I must say, the recuiter is preforming well with the current load.
I'm happy with it... if that matters any!

Thanks for clarifying that guys, and sorry to the member I gave false info to.
It WAS against the rules, lol. Outdated info. :redface:

Last age it was made against the rules because the server just simply wouldn't take it, and we had to do a lot of the work to just keep the server online, nevermind about making it fast, this age, we moved to nginx - and have a slightly smaller userbase, and it seems, even though the site is fairly slow, the server is running smoothly (ish).

We don't want people to abuse this though, we don't want people to go open 3 x CF's, Firefox and VRC - I mean - I had open 2 ClickFeast's and set 100 images and to send the images every 100 (this means the server will get hit less, helping little, but still helping) and a few times I had to wait a minute or so for one to catch up but overall I was clicking casually, which - you know, 2 clients is ok.

Generally, if the rule (we won't really ban for it, Andy will just send an annoying PM to the user if caught) is made, there will be a notice ingame, the notice usually is where the EOA countdown is placed.

it was against the rules but the new rules don't say it isn't

however running CF and normal recruiter only makes it worse for everyone else, which means more will do it, and make it worse for you.
